Scarsdale Little League Opening Day Saturday April 14

LittleLeagueLittle League players, their families and friends will kick off the 2018 season this Saturday, April 14 from 8:30-9:15am at Crossway 3 Field. The Scarsdale Little League is looking forward to a memorable day for the kids with warm and sunny weather in the forecast!

SLL’s special guest this year is former Yankee and Met great, Willie Randolph, who will speak and throw out the first pitch to open the Little League season. He will also sign autographs. Willie is best known for his 13-year stint as the Bombers’ second baseman and his two World Series titles with the club. After his playing career, Willie was a coach with the Yankees for eleven years before being named manager of the Mets in 2005 and leading them to the NLCS in 2006. He is a great example of one who demonstrated his love for baseball through hard work, resilience and a positive attitude.

In addition to Willie’s remarks, the festivities will include remarks from Scarsdale Mayor, Dan Hochvert, Scarsdale Varsity Baseball Coach, Jeff Weigel, and SLL’s Co-President, Gregory Cahaly and the participation of Scarsdale Cub Scout Pack 440 and SLL’s 2017 Kindergarten, Michael Ludwig and Paul U. Jimenez Awards winners and finalists.

Lange’s Deli will be on hand with coffee and breakfast sandwiches for sale, and Scarsdale Little League hoodies, t-shirts, and other items will be available for purchase. 2018 Little League Coaches will receive a special 20% Opening Day discount on Little League merchandise.

The ceremony will start promptly at 8:30am and will last no more than 45 minutes. Everyone is encouraged to arrive early given parking is limited. Parking is also available in the Scarsdale Swimming Pool lot across the street.

Please note that opening games this Saturday in Atlantic and 1st grade leagues will begin at 10:00am, and all subsequent games are pushed back one hour to allow all players to enjoy the Opening Day Ceremony.
